  • Locations - Indigenous Map.

    Includes an Indigenous Map. ‘The Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 requires all Victorians to protect and conserve Aboriginal cultural heritage. Production companies and their representatives should determine whether proposed film locations are in areas of cultural significance to the Aboriginal people of Victoria.’ Film Victoria.

The community still asks about all the members of the film crew to this day. To me, this shows that when things are done in the correct way, an ongoing connection between a community and filmmakers is formed. It shows how those connections become a form of Indigenous resilience for everyone involved. Colonialism has ruptured Indigenous peoples’ lives. I see films such as The Farm as an opportunity for Indigenous people to reconnect: to emphasise connections between ourselves, and our shared connection with the land. This idea of reconnecting with each other and with our land informs everything about The Farm.
